5:37 am
discussion and action, resolution number 58 2013. madam director. >> congratulations, madam chair, madam vice-chair, commissioners, and welcome to the members of the public. thank you for joining us. commissioners, this is a simple limited term extension for an existing bayview contractor, mccoy security, as provided for under the hunters point shipyard phase 1dda, the developer can provide these services. it already provides property management services for the balance of the shipyard, and this limited term extension will allow the developer to go through your purchasing policy and procurement get back contractor on board. so, with that i'd like to ask [speaker not understood] the hunters point shipyard project manager to walk you through the proposed detail of this proposed project. >> thank you, executive director,
5:38 am
greetings. once again, president of the commission, ms. christine johnson, congratulatetions. [speaker not understood], 70,000 to the budget for services during this period. to do that i'll briefly summarize whatth project is, give you some background on the agreements requiring security services agreement [speaker not understood] lastly give you an overview of community services solicitation upped our undertaking. before that i want to introduce mccoy services ms. [speaker not understood] coleman. please stabbed. and ms. karen bay from lennar corporation. as you know, the hunters point shipyard project is one of three major projects, major approved projects [speaker not understood] the office of community investment and infrastructure
5:39 am
is undertaking. it spans both the shipyard proper and the [speaker not understood] bayview for a total of 7 88 acres along the southeastern water froth of san francisco. the shipyard program includes over 12,000 homes, 32% of which will be affordable, a rebill of alice griffith public housing development. 3,000 square feet of research space, 350 acres of new and improved parks and all this will be developed over two phases by the lennar corporation under a first phase it what approved in 2003 under a disposition and development agreement. and second dda in 2010. this will produce thousands and thousands of jobs and 12,000 permanent jobs over the course of the project along with significant infrastructure both community facilities and transit and other types of infrastructure. and as you know, the [speaker not understood] development broke ground this year in july.
5:40 am
one of the principal agreements and the first obligations underpinning the shipyard project is the conveyance agreement between the former redevelopment agency, now the office of community investment and infrastructure, and the navy. the conveyance agreement provides a regulatory framework and process for ocii to receive and manage additional shipyard parcels from the navy in phases over time. one of the first transfer responsibilities that came in 2000 in anticipation of a future parcel a transfer was security and base access management. and furtherance of that, the former redevelopment agency entered into a security cooperative agreement with the navy in 2005 which is essentially a contract to provide security services of the shipyard which the navy provides the majority of funding for. prior to the security [speaker not understood] agreement being entered into but in anticipation of future community property transfer, the agency conducted a solicitation in 2000 and selected mccoy's patrol
5:41 am
services to provide security services at the shipyard. services scope includes front gate access control 24 hours a day 7 days a week, along with ship wide hourly roving patrol on the overnight shift. reporting duties associated with the contract including the reporting of any disturbances to the authorities and ocii and the developer and the preparation of daily, monthly, and vehicle reports and logs. the contract that we are extending today expires december 31st, 2013 and it is at the end of a five-year contract with an annual budget of just over $385,000. the 2003 phase 1dda required lennar to provide property management services at the shipyard through an interim lease which was executed in 2004. that interim lease required lennar to provide all the property management for ocii occupied areas of the shipyard which today, as you know, is only parcel a and a portion of parcel b
5:42 am
which is occupied by the artist. however, the former redevelopment agency elected the contract for security services directly in 2000 and reserved the right to acquire lennar to provide security services if requested in the future by the agency ~. due to the constraints on ocii's staffing as a result of dissolution process, lennar is best positioned to provide security services at the shipyard, especially since they are already providing all the other property management services. lennar agreed to do this. shipyard advisory committee recommended we move forward with this. unfortunately due to the timing of the extension term and lennar's rfp schedule, the additional time is needed on the contract. the time and budget extensions are anticipated to carry us through the rfp period and be sufficient until there is a new contract. rfp is planned for release december 209tion, 2013 with prep sam due january 23rd, 2014. lennar will be conducting an
5:43 am
extension i have rfp outreach process to ensure san francisco bay firms are apprised of the [speaker not understood] and they get an opportunity to submit proposals. both myself and folks from lennar and mccoy are here to answer any questions. that conclude the presentation. thank you. >> thank you very much, mr. kasloski. is there any public comment on this item? >> no speaker cards, madam chair. >> thank you very much. so, i think the reason for this is pretty clear. you know, the agency -- the lennar, rather, manages most of the other property management roles on the shipyard currently and in my mind, from staff's information sort of makes sense that we would wrap this underneath their management as well so they can sort of have a bird's eye view of everything at the shipyard, not have this sort of one piece sort of segmented out for the agency to have to
5:44 am
manage. so, those are my thoughts on it. are there any other questions about the contract extension? or the property management and the shipyard? >> i think they are doing a very good job. i know -- [speaker not understood] for a minute? i know him when he was a little boy. [laughter] >> and, you know, he's very, very nice. i don't know the other people, but i know him. so, i think they are doing a good job. >> and thank you very much for being here today. i don't know if you want to say a few words. yeah, but i'm hoping that you guys are ready for the contract or for the rfp that lamar will put out and you're having no issues there with being prepared to potentially, you know, apply for that. so, commissioner ellington, did you have -- >> if they wanted to say a few words on behalf of the organization.
5:45 am
>> no. >> okay. so, if we've got questions about what we're actually -- the resolution we're looking at today, i'd like to entertain a motion and a second. >> i move. >> is there a second? what, what? yeah, i asked for the comment already. i know you're watching me like a hawk. i'm trying to be on my game. there were no cards. >> i second it. >> thank you very much. madam secretary, please call the role. >> commission members please annoyance your vote when i call your name. commissioner ellington? >> aye. >> commissioner montahar abseptember. commissioner sipping? >> yes. >> vice-chair rosales? >> yes. >> madam chair johnson? >> aye. >> madam chair the vote is four ayes and one absent. >> thank you very much. please call the next item. >> the next order of business is item 6, public comment on non-agenda items. >> do we have any public comment? >> no. >> okay, next item. >> the next order of business
5:46 am
is item 7, report of the chair. >> thank you very much. no specific predetermined report today, although i will say our next meeting is going to be in the southeast. our meeting will be in hunters point in the southeast community facility tart starting at 4 o'clock on december 7th. excuse me? >> january 7th. >> january 7th. what did i say? sorry, january 7th. and i'm really excited for us to be getting back out into the community again with our meetings. next item. >> the next order of business is item 8, report of the executive director, madam director. >> thank you, madam secretary. commissioners and members of the public, i have three short updates for you. the first, thank you to all the members of the public and the hard work of the staff and in particular the leadership and direction from this commission. we just had a groundbreaking at transbay block 6 about approximately 400 market rate units golub, chicago director he, this is their
5:47 am
first investment in san francisco and i believe they've done it right upped your review and direction. it combines 70 units of affordable housing on block 6. [speaker not understood] truly sustainable mixed say stainable. [speaker not understood], mercy housing will be developing another 77 units of housing. so, really thank you for your efforts and the efforts of the community to make that happen. i think that's really emblematic of the work do you here and the work we do with the hard working staff. so, that's one. two, just to draw your attention, there is an informational memorandum in your packet about -- as required under state law. and just good prudence. we do have an independent auditor's report that reviews our year-end financials. no material weaknesses were found. we certainly are managing our funds appropriately and we can also provide you additional details in the new year in 2014 through the budget
5:48 am
process, which we will be kicking off rather soon in february, actually, in term of reports of our balances, how we've been doing over the course of the last year so we can look forward to that in the new year. and then lastly, i'm really pleased as we're wrapping up all the significant accomplishments. i think it's almost a year to the date or so that this commission has been installed and we're moving at quite a fast clip here. and i am pleased to announce another advancement. in the shipyard, the developer there, lennar, has informed us that they are proceeding with construction. they've secured outside lender financing for block 53 and 54 which you provided a design review approval, the vertical dba approval for those blocks, include 54 townhomes, 105 flats and they are expected to be
5:49 am
complete in april 2015. we'll have again a more detailed report for you in 2014, early 2014, but i wanted to let you know that your work and your leadership are resulting in new homes on the shipyard, in total approximately now it will be 250 homes under construction. housing, really housing for all working families, working san franciscans. so, that's quite exciting. and then i did want to draw your attention, just as a personal point of privilege, to share a communication that i received from the hunters point developer, lennar. i have received notice that cheryl smith, who is the director of their community affairs, many of you know her from her deep work. she comes from the bayview. her tireless work of the last six years. certainly she will be missed. she's created a deep bench there in order to carry on her work. but really, i think the
5:50 am
shipyard, it stands where it does today in large part to her personal commitment and her work on behalf of her neighborhood bayview and all san franciscans. she certainly will be missed and we wish her well. but they certainly do have a deep bench to carry it on. but i did want to draw your attention to that. that concludes my director's report. >> thank you very much. we will be sad to see cheryl go, yes, she will definitely be missed. not that she's like, you know, not in the community any more, but not lennar. madam secretary, please call the next item. >> the next order of business is item 9, commissioners' questions and matters. madam chair. >> thank you. any questions or matters? no? excellent. next item. >> the next order of business is item 10, closed session. >> thank you very much. we will be adjourning for just a moment to clear the room of anyone who is not involved in this closed session's item.
5:51 am
>> please call the next item. >> the next item of business is adjournment. madam chair. >> thank you very much. we are adjourned at 2:53. [gavel]

>> welcome to culture wire. we will look at the latest and greatest public art project. recently, the airport unveiled the new state of the art terminal. let's take a look. the new terminal service and
5:53 am
american airlines and virgin america was designed by a world- renowned architecture's firm. originally built in 1954, the building underwent massive renovation to become the first registered terminal and one of the must modern and sustainable terminals and the united states. the public art program continues its 30-year legacy of integrating art into the airport environment with the addition of five new commissions that are as bold and dynamic as the new building. >> this project was completed in record time, and we were able to integrate the artist's early enough in the process that they could work with the architect said that the work that is completed is the work that really helps complement and instill the space as opposed to being tucked away in a corner.
5:54 am
>> be experience begins with the glass facades that was designed with over 120 laminated glass panels. it captures the experience of being under or over clouds when flying in a plane. depending on the distance or point of view, it can appear clear for more abstract and atmospheric. the subtle colors change gradually depending on the light and the time of day. >> i wanted to create an art work that looks over time as well as working on in the first glance. the first time you come here, you may not see a. but you may be able to see one side over the other. it features a couple of suspended sculptures. each was created out of a series of flat plains run parallel to each other and constructed of
5:55 am
steel tubing. >> it is made up of these strata. as the light starts to shift, there is a real sense that there is a dynamism. >> it gives the illusion that this cultures might be fragments of a larger, mysterious mass. >> the environmental artwork livens it with color, light, and the movement. three large woven soldiers are suspended. these are activated by custom air flow program. >> i channeled air flow into each of these forms that makes it move ever so slightly. and it is beating like a heart.
5:56 am
if-0 when as of the forces of nature moving around us every second. >> shadow patterns reflect the shapes of the hanging sculptures. the new terminal also features a children's play areas. both of the market the exploratory n.y. -- exploratorium. the offer travelers of all ages a playful oasis. using high quality plywood, they created henches shaped like a bird wings that double as musical instruments. serving as a backdrop is a mural featuring images of local birds and san francisco's famous skyline. >> in the line between that is
5:57 am
so natural, you can see birds and be in complete wilderness. i really like that about this. you could maybe get a little snapshot of what they are expecting. >> it is an interactive, keck sculpture that is interacted with by the visitor. >> they are a lot about and they fall down the belt. it moves the belt up, and if you turn that faster, the butterflies fall in the move of words. >> the art reflect the commission's commitment to acquiring the best work from the bay area and beyond. in addition to the five new commissions, 20 artworks that were already in the airport collection were reinstalled.
5:58 am
some of which were historically cited in the terminal. it includes major sculptures by the international artists. as a collection, these art works tell the story of the vibrant arts scene in the early 1960's through the mid-1980s's. the illustrate san francisco's cultural center and a place of innovation that is recognized and the love throughout the world. one of the highlights is a series of three left tapestries. they are on view after being in storage for 20 years. these tapestries representing various gardens. from his years of living in san francisco. hydrangeas, chrysanthemums, and whilst dahlias in rich, deep shades as they make their way to
